Equine Hospital – The new clinic offers a large animal breezeway, complete with crush, to provide an ideal area for our vets to perform minor procedures on your horse (such as reproductive examinations, dentistry or minor surgical procedures). Our equine facilities also include stables, yards and paddocks to provide suitable accommodation for your horse regardless of its requirements. If you feel you do not have the available time or experience to provide the prescribed treatment for your horse, please feel free to enquire about hospitalization at our clinic for the duration of the treatment period.

Equine Dentistry – Most of our vets have undertaken further training in equine dentistry, ensuring your horse’s teeth are in good hands. We offer routine and corrective dental work as well as surgical procedures such as tooth removals, drainage of sinus infections and wolf tooth extractions. Our Powerfloat enables correction of severe dental abnormalities which are unable to be corrected with manual rasping alone.

Diagnostic Imaging – Our hospital possesses three ultrasound machines, three X-ray machines and an equine endoscopy unit. Ultrasound is a useful diagnostic tool for equine reproductive exams and pregnancy diagnosis, imaging damaged tendons and other diagnostic work-ups involving soft tissue. X-rays are used for skeletal problems. Our fibre optic endoscope is useful for further investigation of upper respiratory tract disease in horses. We are also able to offer referral for scintigraphy in all species, and for CT and MRI scans and fluoroscopy for small animals.

Pathology and Diagnostics – Our clinic in Yarrambat has an IDEXX in-house pathology unit, capable of processing blood samples within half an hour. This is very handy in the diagnosis of snake envenomation when a rapid result can be life saving (it should be noted that we always have snake anti-venom in stock at both clinics). We also use our pathology machine to offer pre-anaesthetic screens on the day of surgery. Urinalysis, blood glucose monitoring and basic cytology is available at both clinics. We also utilize specialized veterinary laboratories to run more complex tests.

Dermatology – We are fortunate to have Dr. Rob Hilton BVSc(Hons) MACVs(Canine Medicine)CertVD MRCVs working at our Yarrambat clinic on Fridays. Dr Rob Hilton is a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate Holder in Veterinary Dermatology and has years of clinical experience. He receives referral work from other clinics as well as consulting for our own clients that are battling challenging skin cases in their pets.

Wildlife – Our clinic is committed to the welfare and care of local wildlife and encourage members of the public that find injured birds and animals to bring them down to see us. If suitable for rehabilitation we will call upon our passionate, dedicated and highly knowledgeable group of local carers, such as Maxine, to provide the husbandry required to make recovery possible. Donations for the running of these wildlife shelters can be made at either clinic.

SheepMAP and CattleMAP – We have accredited veterinarians to run these programs on your property. If you think your stud would benefit from accreditation, or want more information on what is involved in the programs, please contact the clinic.

AQIS Services – We have a vet accredited with the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Services (AQIS), so we can assist with the treatments, tests and certificates that are necessary to send your pet overseas.
